Vail Daily letter: Supports wilderness proposal
May 5, 2011
As a Denver resident who enjoys the outdoors, I couldn’t help but smile when I heard about Rep. Jared Polis’ plan to protect lands in nearby Eagle and Summit counties. While the areas aren’t right in my backyard, they’re still easy to visit.
I, much like many visitors to Colorado, depend on public lands for opportunities to enjoy unspoiled vistas, healthy forests and thriving wildlife. Whether it’s hiking, camping, cross-country skiing or hunting, our wilderness areas have much to offer.
I’m thankful that Rep. Polis shares my sentiments and hope these areas receive the lasting protection they deserve.
